    From what I've seen, while most of the output from the current batch of 3D printing is plastic, this it is real.

    I'm almost sure this is real - wait 'till you have to repair one of these "printers".

    The 3D printer aspect is real, but if you look at the screw mechanism in the final part, it's obvious that they remade it in CAD to be more suitable for the printing process.

    I have an account that is the local dealer for these machines.

    Got to see them up close.

    They said copier techs would have no problem migrating to 3d.

    Uses the same principles as a copier.

    Why do they call it common sense?

    If it were common, wouldn't everyone have it?

    It may only print in plastic, but I had seen something a few months back about someone who had actually programmed and printed a functional plastic hand gun.

    Re: 3d printing real?

    Yust two days ago there was a TV representation of a local company that does 3D printing
    It was live show on a local TV
    They brought 3D printer in the studio and while the show went on,printer was printing an object.

    What came out in the end was totally distorted object of what they wanted to print.
    They said it was due to not right humidity in the studio....
